Fuel tank XT600E

Yes! XT600E fuel tank is going to my Tenere :) Look at the pic below - XT660 tank, without Tenere fairings and panels looks rather oddly :)

I bought fuel tank from XT600E, 2002 model. As you can see on the pic - tank is much smaller than original one :)

Looks better? YEAH!
I only put the tank on the frame to get some view :)

After lots of measurements I deceided to mount the tank.
I bought XT600 tank rubber holders. I have to fix it to the frame.

I welded bolts to metal strap and then welded it to the frame.
Immediately after frame got coolled I covered it with grey primer to prevent get it rusty.
Fuel tank holder is ready :)
